Watch: Memphis Depay attempts overhead kick & completely misses ball

Memphis Depay, Barcelona

Barcelona summer signing Memphis Depay endured an embarrassing moment after failing an overhead kick during their game against Granada. 

Depay, who joined the Catalan club on a free transfer last July, has made a good start to the season with two goals in his first five games.

But he had a moment to forget when he failed to connect with the ball after attempting an acrobatic kick in the 48th minute of Barcelona’s 1-1 draw at the Camp Nou.

The attempt from the former Manchester United man, which came while Barcelona where 1-0 down, summed up a poor performance for Ronald Koeman’s team who currently sit seventh in the La Liga table.

Fortunately for the Spanish giants centre-back Ronald Araujo managed to salvage a point with a 90th-minute goal, taking at least some of the spotlight of Depay.
